DCConnect  proposes a new Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) architecture based on Proof of Availability (PoAV) – a proof for verifying the service parameters and Service Levels Agreement (SLA) committed by service providers. Proof of Availability is a sequence of computation that can provide a way to cryptographically verify parameters.

Some key parameters of SLA are tracked on Proof of Availability. Service validators who are verifying the service level parameters submit the proof. At initial stage, key service level parameters include but not limited to:

  1.  Service Coverage;
  2. Committed Service Uptime;
  3. Committed Service Delivery Lead time;
  4. Committed Service Restoration Lead time;
  5. Round Trip Delay (RTD) of network connectivity, also known as “latency”;
  6. Jitter of network connectivity;
  7. Packet Loss of network connectivity;
  8. Others which applicable to other services.

Any violation on the committed SLA will trigger the execution of Smart Contract programmed on the DLT. Once the Smart Contract is executed, a negative impact on the credit rating of that service provider which violates the SLA will be issued, therefore, the credit rating of that service provider will decrease. The Credit Rating is an open information transparent to all buyers and sellers. The result is any service providers would make their efforts to ensure the committed SLA is fulfilled to any buyers, thus the service quality of the entire telecommunication market will be uplifted.

12 April 2021 – MEF members HGC Global Communications
(HGC), DCConnect Global, and QLC Chain under the auspices of MEF have successfully collaborated in their MEF Proof-of-Concept (PoC) that leverages MEF Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) APIs with Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to create Smart Bilaterals for end-to-end ordering, billing and settlement of data services.

In November 2019, Daniel Bar-Lev, Director Office of the CTO, MEF discussed about MEF 3.0 Proof of Concept (PoC) ‘Inter-Carrier Credit Rating using Smart Contracts and Blockchain’ with Victor Ma, Head of Alliance & Market Development at DCConnect Global Ltd.

Telcos, the API Economy and Blockchain

In year 2021, DCConnect received The award of Best Blockchain Solution provider 2021 from CC Global Award 2021

Inter-Carrier Commerce with DLT

More and more Telcos are undergoing a digital transformation, using SDN to handover traffic to other carriers, forming a federation using a shared API specification. This allows carriers to check Service Coverage, get Quotes, List available Products and Order services from each other in minutes.

Product Specification

Our Blockchain Credit Scorecard is a service integrated with the SDN network so it automatically detects and updates when a carrier ethernet service is ordered by the customer through a self-service portal.Using Blockchain, we can automate the service inventory and settle inter-carrier transactions within the federation. The private nature of the blockchain makes the transactions visible only to those carriers. A consensus mechanism in the blockchain ensures that the transactions cannot be changed after the fact. Furthermore, the system allows carriers to set an SLA that is applied across all members. When the network detects that the SLA is met, a Smart Contract automatically updates the carrier’s Credit score on a public blockchain providing a proof of Service Delivery and Quality that can be trusted by customers and other members of the federation. Our Blockchain Credit Scorecard takes the lessons learned from the financial industry and applies it to the Telecom Industry. In conclusion, the combination of SDN Automation and the Blockchain Credit Scorecard results in a complete package for inter-carrier service delivery, proof of settlement and quality assurance.
